Numerical Study on the Blade Channel Vorticity in a Francis Turbine
Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing
A relevant way to promote the sustainable development of energy is to use hydropower. Related systems heavily rely on the use of turbines, which require careful analysis and optimization. In the present study a mixed experimental-numerical approach is implemented to investigate the related mixed water flow. In particular, particle image velocimetry (PIV) is initially used to verify the effectiveness of the numerical model. Then numerical results are produced for various conditions.
